This course is designed for students to practice the shooting aspect of the California course of fire for the CCW renewal qualification. This is a range intensive class, with very little classroom, other than safety briefing and discussing the course of fire. For current CCW holders who are in need of renewal, this is a new course of fire that may require some CCW holders to utilize additional range time to master the course.
This course of instruction is for individuals who carry a concealed defensive pistol and are seeking to meet the California renewal requirements of the issuing agency and wish to practice prior to the renewal class.
Possess a valid CCW permit.
Students failing to meet and maintain our safety requirements and/or who cannot meet and immediately demonstrate the minimum skills required for the specific class may be removed from our concealed carry pistol training. Please ensure you have read through the class description and fully understand our prerequisites before registering.
